    I built a pretty substantial Tiki Bar and covered seating area in my yard and most of the decor is tropical in nature. I’ve wanted to add a water feature such as a water fountain for the longest time now but haven’t been able to find one that I like. There are a few in this list that I think would work perfectly for me like the wood barrel or fire feature

  2. Ann Pape

    Love the inspiration. I don’t currently have a yard to decorate, but this made me excited for the future when I do have one.

  3. LuLu B - Calabrisella Mia

    These water fountains are really beautiful. I absolutely love the different designs and features. I really like the zen water fountain! And the rustic fountain with three jugs is just precious! I wish I had a garden so I could have fountains like these to create a beautiful garden oasis!

    I love gardening. I have actually been thinking of adding a water feature to my garden for this upcoming spring. Currently I have a water fountain, but the pump no longer works, so it’s more of a bird bath right now! I love the Zen Water Fountain and the water fountain with the three jugs.

  6. Lindsay Brown

    I was going to comment with my favourite one but then after reading your article I realised I couldn’t pick just one! All of these fountains are stunning and they can add so much to a garden area. I am really hoping to find a cool unique fountain for my back yard this coming summer! I’ll keep this post and your suggestions in mind when looking!

    I’ve talked to my husband before about getting something like the 4-tiered rock fountain that you shared. I love the waterfall-esque look to it! I feel like it would be a great addition to our little backyard oasis!
